Timing is everything.
Northstar has had a long-running crush on Iceman. Nothing ever happened because at the time, Jean-Paul thought Bobby was straight. And now that Bobby's out of the closet, Northstar is happily married. 💔
Which almost-but-never-quite-happened X-Pairing would you have liked to see in the comics? Aside from Northstar & Iceman, my biggest "what if" is Storm and Forge. 💔
